In other words,
how much can the City Council
cover Guilford County's budget deficit?
...members of the two boards met in a closed door meeting today to try to resolve a long-standing disagreement over their water/sewer trust fund and extending city water/sewer lines to some parts of the county.
Doesn't Guilford County owe the City of Greensboro
millions from the trust fund?
Is Joe Killian going to point that out at some point in print?
Will John Hammer?
From the commissioners' end, at least,
it looks like the meeting was a success.
...Commissioners Chairman Melvin "Skip" Alston
said .."As I predicted,
this new council has been much easier to work with,"
Is there documentation of a "prediction"?
"Sometimes it's just about getting into a room
with the right people.
What does "right people" mean?
I think this is going to be a relationship of cooperation between us
for the benefit of the people of Greensboro and Guilford County."
In what way?
If Skip Alston's Simkins PAC partner Steve Bowden
is on a few Greensboro Partnership committees
which is "helping" the City of Greensboro
by paying a portion of the costs of a new federal lobbyist,
whose parents contributed to Robbie Perkin's campaign,
of whom Mr. Perkins has known said lobbyist since he was six,
as the Greensboro Partnership supported
another billion of debt for Greensboro and Guilford County
and a great deal of whose membership
helped pay for the last election propaganda...?
Councilwoman Nancy Vaughan,
who had been working on the issue as a representative of the city for months,
said she was hopeful that the county and city
could finally reach an agreement.
"We've made progress," she said.
What specific progress?
How is this not propaganda
if the GN&R reports on this,
and not on the campaign contribution connection?
